Ensuring Access to Generic Medications

Generic drugs offer treatment options that are as safe and effective as brand name drugs while also helping lower costs for both patients and health systems. It's estimated that over the last 10 years, generics have saved Americans $1.5 trillion
Generic drugs offer treatment options that are as safe and effective as brand name drugs while also helping lower costs for both patients and health systems. It's estimated that over the last 10 years, generics have saved Americans $1.5 trillion. However, there are still many off-patent medications that have few or no generic alternatives. And even when generics do exist, there are instances where the generic receives steep price increases or experiences shortages.

During this podcast, we speak with Ron Piervincenzi, PhD, chief executive officer (CEO) of the United States Pharmacopeia, and Martin Van Trieste, CEO of Civica Rx, about these issues and what their companies are doing to address them.
